30 Day Book Challenge: Day 2 - A Book You've Read More Than 3 Times

The Hero and the Crown - Robin McKinley The Blue Sword - Robin McKinley Ella Enchanted - Gail Carson Levine

For the sake of honesty, I'm not sure how many times I actually "read" these three books, but rest assured that I read and re-read all of my favorite scenes multiple times, and scanned these babies more times than I can count.

 

The Hero and the Crown; The Blue Sword:  Both of these were written by the fabulously talented Robin McKinley, whom I adore.  She has such a way with worlds and fantasy worlds!  These are middle-school-aged books, but I still go back and flip through them, even in my twenties.  They hold a very special place in my heart.

 

Technically, The Hero and the Crown is a prequel to The Blue Sword, but the latter was written first.  Fun fact!

 

Ella Enchanted:  I loved this book back when it first came out!  I believe I was about ten years old and I used to read it and pretend to be Ella, waiting for my tawny Prince Charming.  I still remember that he had tawny skin because that was the first time I'd ever heard the word. Ha!

 

Of course, highly recommended. :D
